Treat your fur baby to a cozy new kennel that’s Instagram ready too.
B&B Kustom Kennels is reinventing how we cater to our pets. Created by husband and wife duo, Brody and Bethany Rathman, this new design of doggy kennels is quickly making waves for dog owners all around.
The idea came about when the couple adopted their 8-month-old Labradoodles, Gracie and Pyper and saw that the traditional dog kennels were bulky, unflattering and uncomfortable for their new pups. Brody and Bethany learned that there were not any sleek and stylish kennels on the market. So Brody decided to handcraft kennels for their pups. They customized them with size, comfort, and style in mind. They quickly recognized a need for this type of kennel on the market and the rest was history.
B&B Kustom Kennels will create a new, relaxed home that is designed specifically to fit your pups’ needs. Not only do they create kennels but they also offer fabulous doggy loungers if that’s more your style.

"Meet Bethany Rathman of B&B Kustom Kennels in Larkspur"
In short, building our brand and story has not been smooth, but the challenges have made us who we are! We started off in our garage and basement building kennels in 450 square feet. Our first year in business was 2016. To gain exposure we drove to pet expos across the country in Phoenix, Dallas, Las Vegas and Denver. The road trips were fun, but exhausting! We were both working two jobs for months until we finally took the leap and went all in on our new business.
